Walking it is.....
I try and walk everyday for 10 months a year and during the hot summer months I swim.
|My walking friends😁|
Exercise for me is the very best way to keep my figure reasonably trim and also with a sensible diet. It also makes me feel good! That is what has always worked for me, of course that would have been during a normal year ! The crunch to my routine came in mid March when the lockdown was declared and we all had to isolate ourselves at home. By the end of March I decided I had to do something even though I still had to stay isolated so I started my Corridor Walk ;walking briskly up and down my hallway for an hour approx each evening. Incredibly boring but I was at least moving my legs. I think Sr P thought I had a screw loose!!
I posted my progress on my Facebook page:
and then we were released..that was towards the end of June...and the summer was underway...and it was hot.....too hot to walk!! Normally I would have taken to the swimming pool and the beaches as I usually do and love doing but we weren't allowed to use the community or public swimming pools! We were not allowed to use the beaches either as they were closed to the public too!!
It became a waiting game and I was back to no exercise again!!
At the beginning of July they opened the beaches so we were able to return to our little secluded part of the beach we go to and back to snorkelling....fabulous!! The swimming pools were allowed to open as from mid July ...perfect......I was able to get back to swimming practically daily!! Nonetheless the confinement had taken its toll and I had put on **** kilos...groan!!!
The heat has lingered more this year and it is taking me longer to get back to walking on a regular basis! There are also impediments which I find difficult to describe because they are from within me and I don't understand the way I am feeling at present. When I worked I was very very active and managed to walk a lot, to work and in my spare time...I felt good!! Now,I feel lethargic, lacking in motivation and very little get up and go. I feel I have no purpose ..no objectives...housework and such doesn't really fill me!!. I need to work this out for myself...this change in my life and status!! Everything seems to be an effort and walking is one of them!!
I hope I will not bore you too much but to motivate me and give me purpose from now on I shall be posting about my walks as well. 😊 The challenge will be trying to find something of interest to post about while I walk here in the city.
Have a great weekend
